We see a future where women contribute equally to the positive transformation of society through their role in the workplace.

Fitted for Work

We help women experiencing adversity break through barriers to get and keep work.


Disadvantage can happen to a woman at any time in her life.

At Fitted for Work, we believe women are a catalyst for creating a more socially cohesive and prosperous society, which is why our work is so important. We help women to develop their confidence and achieve economic security.

Our programs and services stem from a belief that when women are fitted for work they are fitted for life. We know that when women have hope, confidence and economic security through work, the flow on effect is transformational, both to their families but also to society as a whole.

If work and economic independence feel out of reach, we’re here to help you.
